Internet Cafe Devotions have just released their top 100 blog winners. And I am honored and mostly surprised that WOMEN TAKING A STAND was one of those 100! (yoo-hoo)

Some of you may not be familiar with this award, but once a year Internet Cafe Devotions take nominations from their readers. There are ten different categories and the top 10 blogs nominated in each category is graced with the BLESSED AROMA AWARD.

WOMEN TAKING A STAND was blessed with the award of CUP OF THE DAY BLOG. Internet Cafe Devotions describes this award as the “cup” you couldn’t do without. You find yourself daily drawn in to sit a spell. You leave inspired and encouraged.

I am so awed and blessed that each of you take the time daily to stop by and visit me. It is always my passion and desire that what I pen here will always be God-driven. So many friends have crossed by this way that have encouraged me with their comments and I am truly blessed by each of you!

If this is your first time visiting me, pull up a chair, pour a cup of coffee and scroll down thru some past posts. May you find encouragement and inspiration before you leave here.
